Hi Martin,

You should be able to link to Excel and Word documents from Org by
prefixing the normal path with "file+sys:" instead of just file.  This
doesn't work when the files are on a Windows Share (at least for me),
though.  I'm also interested in getting a robust connection between Org and
Outlook so I will be paying attention to this thread with earnest.

Best Regards,
